Weekly Azure Digest – August 7th, 2009
As promised, I’m gonna keep things updating while I’m working on my Cloud Architecture model/pattern project by sharing a weekly digest newsletter that I send out to my Sogeti Colleagues here in Minneapolis. Below is the edition for August 7th, 2009.
Aside from yesterday’s DDOS attacks on Twitter, there’s not much on the general cloud computing front this week. But I do have a couple BIG item for Microsoft Azure.
At 2pm today, a semi-formal chat will be held by the Azure product team. They’re looking for feedback and questions on Azure. Expect some of the big names in the Azure evangelistic community to be present. You can attend by going to: http://wazl.cloudapp.net/ (note from the URL, this appears to have been built on Azure)
The Twin Cities Cloud Computing User Group has moved their August meeting to the 26th at 8:30am. Dave Chappell of Chappell Associates (not the comedian) is coming to speak. More details can be found at: http://www.tccloud.com/ The time may not be the best, but I highly recommend making time to attend.
And on a personal note, I was interviewed last week by Carl Brooks of SearchCloudComputing.com (an online media site). Our discussion resulted in two separate articles in which I was quoted. One of which Carl didn’t even plan for but arose from our discussions. You can find both these articles at: http://bit.ly/2emO2S and http://bit.ly/3NH9QM
That’s all for this week. Please feel free to forward this on to anyone or let me know if you’d like to be on the regular distribution list.
